My Week In Instagrams

  1. Baby Joe and I were out early last Sunday, the supermarket car park was a ghost town, we felt like the only ones up and out!
  2. How pretty are these pins I found at my Mum's?
  3. We've all had a horrible cold all this week so we've been trying to self medicate with a hot toddy every evening!
  4. Easter nest cakes go with Easter week like love and marriage, or a horse and carriage. Yum.
  5. The main thing.
  6. I went on a lovely trip to London this week, without baby Joe! Look at this totally dreamy window display at Laduree.
  7. The main purpose of the trip was to see the David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy, which closes this week. I'm not sure if you're really allowed to take photos in there but I sneaked this one!
  8. Lovely cotton prints at Liberty. If you've never been to Liberty before, I absolutely recommend it. It is the most beautiful shop in the world and sells so many pretty things, it is a London must see.
  9. We took a trip to see our friends for Sunday lunch. I love how the combination of sunny weather and those clever Instagram filters can make a drive on the M1 look like a California road trip!
That's how my week looked this week. How was yours? I hope it was fantastic and that you have a wonderful Easter weekend (or Passover. Or just Bank Holiday!)


  1. Hope you all are feeling better now and had a lovely weekend. My mom has those same pins

    1. Thank you, we're all feeling a lot better now! Its no fun looking after a baby when you're ill :( I think all the chocolate over Easter had healing properties!! Funny about the pins, they just caught my eye because of the pretty colours. Mums have all the best stuff!

      Thanks so much for commenting, Amy Xxx

  2. Hello :) I just found your blog via Pinterest, I really like it! Will be following!

    1. Oh thank you! I LOVE Pinterest, I've found lots of great blogs on there. So nice to have you on board, thanks for leaving a comment, I love to get them! Amy Xxx

  3. I loved looking at all of these on instagram this past week! England is on my "dream trip" wish list...i used to watch the Samantha Brown Travel shows, and everytime she went to England, I was as giddy as a school girl..hope to visit there someday =)

    1. Hi Louise, London is a great city and we're lucky to live so close - it's good to be reminded not to take it for granted! Funnily enough, one of the things I love about Instagram is getting to see when life looks like in other countries, to me in the UK all the pictures of life in the USA look so glamourous and exciting.

      We were just talking yesterday about how much my Dad would love to go to New York, a place he's only seen on films and TV, and to us that is a faraway dream destination. It is strange to think that there are people who live their everyday in these places, and for them they are no more exotic than us going into London.

      I hope you get to make that dream trip one day, in the meantime isn't Instagram a great way to sneak a peek into other cities and other lives?

      Have a great day, thanks for leaving a comment! Amy Xxx
